The King of Ithaca - Glyn Iliffe

This is the first of a new series published by Pan Macmillan . I was lucky to receive a proof copy. Thanks Ellen.

Very much in the Manfredi/Iggulden genre, this is a reworking of the story of Odysseus, this book covers his winning of Penelope, something that I was not familiar with. I found it utterly fascinating, the historic detail was excellent. This was an easy and enjoyable read, and I am looking forward to the next instalments to see how he handles the more famous parts of the story.

As a personal read I can absolutely recommend it, I am not sure there would be much to discuss for a reading group.

This book is published in June.
